“I Can No Longer Be A Part Of That Team”

Barack Obama Lecturing America Once Again

A gay Democrat activist penned a powerful editorial in the wake of the Orlando massacre. It explains why the incident, and the Democrats’ response, has fundamentally transformed his ideology.

This is the saddest day of my life. I can’t even wrap my mind around the horror of what happened last night in Orlando, where 50 joyful dancing queers were murdered by a religious extremist. I’m sad — devastated, in my soul — about that; but I’m also sad that the events of Orlando have shattered my political beliefs, as I can no longer swear allegiance to a peace-love-and-unicorns progressive philosophy that only helps to get my fellow queers killed.

Yes, there is a war between religious fundamentalism and the spirit of love and tolerance. But we progressives here in America still labor under the delusion that the religion we need to combat is Christianity. But that’s a strawman opponent, and has been so for decades. Since the 1990s, Christian extremists have essentially lost all their power, and are now toothless nonplayers in the “culture wars.” Meanwhile, Muslim extremists, with guns, murder us, and on the left our only response is to bleat about “Islamophobia” and jump through hoops trying to explain away the self-evident religious motivation for the killings.

Take a moment to read the entire editorial at the link. It is definitely worth your time.

  3. Cathy – Yes, because Democrats treat people who leave the party with the same compassion Islamists treat people who leave their religion.

    Ingineer – I’ll take it, too. He’s right, though; Democrats hold Muslims in higher esteem than gays,
